Miles Sorenson prides himself on his brutal honesty. Facts and logic are a hell of a lot easier to deal with than emotions. He’s got his career and a small, close-knit group of friends, and he doesn’t need nor want anything else. The total opposite of Quinn Barker, who doesn’t take life too seriously and thinks a good laugh can cure anything.
When Quinn takes Miles home, it’s supposed to be a one-time deal. Except they really click in the sack and end up spending the weekend together, enjoying each other’s bodies as much as their company…to Miles’s dismay. Matters get even more muddled when, months later, they run into each other at the popular West Hollywood bar, Wild Side, and pick up right where they left off.
On the surface, Quinn and Miles are like oil and water, but the draw between them is undeniable. As their lives further entwine, they realize there’s more to their connection than the way they singe the sheets together.
But demons from the past have a way of catching up, and no matter how strong the link is tying Miles and Quinn together, the pressure may be enough to make it snap.
“Fuck, I’ve never told anyone that story before. I think it’s time I go.”
Miles stood, and when Quinn did as well, his legs nearly gave out. It was like his bones had gone soft and could hardly hold him up. “Don’t go,” he said, but Miles already had his back to him and was heading for the door.
“I need to.”
This was their connection, Quinn realized. It was the piece that tied them together. The draw he’d felt to Miles and one he believed Miles had felt to him.
“Miles,” Quinn said and the other man stopped at the door.
When Quinn reached him, he put his hands at Miles’s hips. Leaned his forehead against Miles’s back. Slowly, Quinn’s hands slid forward until they wrapped around Miles’s waist.
They were that way one beat, then two and three, and before he knew it, Miles turned on him. Took control as he grabbed Quinn, pushed him against the wall, heavy pressure from his fingertips digging into Quinn’s skin. And then Miles’s mouth collided with his.
It was a kiss filled with hunger, with anger, and maybe some pain too. It was Miles putting things back on his terms. Taking control and Quinn gladly giving it up to him.
Their teeth clanked against each other’s. Miles’s cock pressed against Quinn’s. He bit at Quinn’s lip and sucked his tongue, and in this moment, Quinn would gladly let Miles overpower him in any way he wanted.
But just as quickly as it started, Miles jerked away. Quinn expected him to immediately walk out. To cut contact because this was becoming something totally different from what it was supposed to be. But then…it had been that way their first weekend, hadn’t it? If not, they would have fucked and Miles would have been gone an hour later.
Miles’s breath was hot against Quinn’s face, and he knew the other man was trying to hold himself back.
When he stepped away slowly, he said, “Thank you.”
“What are you thanking me for?” Quinn asked.
“I don’t know.” And then, he walked out of the apartment, and Quinn tried to figure out what in the hell was going on.
